Superstar Actor, Producer & Director Ajay Devgn’s first international production ‘PARCHED’ is all set to have its exciting world Premiere at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival in September 2015! Ajay Devgn will also be visiting Toronto to attend the World Premiere screening of ‘Parched’.
Produced by Devgn under his USA based venture Shivalaya Entertainment, in association with Blue Waters Motion Picture, Airan Consultants, “PARCHED’ is written by Leena Yadav & Supratik Sen & directed by Leena Yadav with talented ensemble cast of Tannishtha Chatterjee, Radhika Apte, Surveen Chawla, Adil Hussain, Lehar Khan, Riddhi Sen, Mahesh Balraj & Chandan Anand.
PARCHED essays the story of four ordinary women, in a rural Indian village, who begin to throw off the traditions that hold them in servitude in an inspirational drama.
Ajay Devgn, Producer says “Parched’ is about the small battles that women must fight to win the big war. Films like ‘Parched’ need to be made, seen, and discussed. Then maybe along the way we can correct some of the many wrongs that women have suffered since eternity. It’s gonna be the first time for me because usually I stay away from the glitz and madness of any film awards and events. I’m excited to attend TIFF because it celebrates world cinema…Where best of the world talent meet, greet and appreciate each other. We always had the belief in Leena’s vision as a writer & director. It’s very heart warming for me to see my support finally getting the appreciation it deserves.”
